The Killers have continued their output of excellent studio albums after the release of 'Sawdust' the collection of B-sides and rarities. Standout tracks on Day & Age are the opening 'Losing Touch', 'Human', 'Spaceman', 'A Dustland Fairytale' and 'This Is Your Life'. I highly recommend that you buy this album, overall you will not be disappointed. Going to see them live soon, cant wait!!!
The line are we human or are we dancers comes from a Hunter S. Thomson comment that America was raising a generation of dancers. Still don't understand?....... Think about it rather than putting ill informed reviews on here.
This albulm is so good, you can see that they have really developed as a band. The tracks have the distinctive Killers sound but they are just much better than previous albulms. 'Human' is an excellent track, it really stands out but it is backed up by many other brilliant songs.
This album is an absolutely stunning piece of work from The Killers. The whole experience is just riddled with passion. Stand out tracks for me are 'A Dustland Fairytale' and my favourite Killers track ever 'Goodnight, Travel Well.' The latter is 6:53 of unrivalled passion and epic delight. It may take some longer to appreciate, but the first time i heard it, i felt a cold chill as the crescendo broke through. Its a true feast to the ears.
This is the 4th release from The Killers & I have to say I'm so glad they've reverted back to the style of Hot Fuss/Sam's Town era, & not the alternative style they did for Sawdust. All these songs are top quality, & anyone who loves 80s style synth music would love this album - some of the intros/tunes on the songs have you humming along like it's a song you've heard before from years ago. They are absolutely the best band in the world right now, but I am biased!!
When I heard human the single I thought it was a bit limp as the lead single form the album - however as it turns out it is the best song! the album is a let down, no real edge to it. easy listening maybe a bit of a grower but another disapointing return in 2009.
